NORTH PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia Police say a man who attempted to stop a robbery Tuesday night ended up becoming the victim and stabbed a 15-year-old suspect in self-defense.

According to police, three teenagers attempted to rob a man in a wheelchair in the area of 29th and Dauphin.

Police say as the three suspects harassed the wheelchair bound man, another man who happened to be walking by intervened.

The suspects then turned on the 49-year-man, according to police.

Police say that's when the man pulled out a knife and stabbed one of the teens, a 15-year-old, in the upper chest in self-defense.

The teenager was taken to Hahneman Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Police say they are looking for the other two suspects.
